"In our culture, many peole think of intimacy as another word for sex. The question, "Were you intimate?" is used euphemistically, implying a certain meaning without saying so. Though intimacy can be a part of sexuality, it is much more, and certainly is not limited to romantic relationship. True intimacy is about being open, genuine, unguarded, and fully present. And it is this that the Addictive personality tell us is not such a good idea.
